Make a holiday apartment in Ribeira your home away from home

Ribeira holiday homes are on a scenic peninsula in a region of Spain famed for its moderate climate, untouched nature and world-class seafood. There's a fine choice of beaches close to Ribeira apartments - some are sheltered bays facing the mainland, while others are spectacular Atlantic bays with huge expanses of sand and lively surf. On land you'll be able to reach rugged hills, covered with deciduous forest, dissected by fast-flowing rivers. Holiday homes in Ribeira tend to be compact, perfect for couples and families - most are within touching distance of a beach and are equipped with all the essentials.

Things to do

-Local culture. Ribeira is a place that will hold an interest for anybody who wants to see a thriving Atlantic port. Whether it's mussel-farming, shipping or fishing, the city owes its livelihood to the ocean. Needless to say, the fish market is a fantastic way to understand this community - it's one of the busiest in Spain and remains active into the afternoon. For remarkable views of Ribeira and the peninsula, it's well worth climbing Castro, a hill just outside the town.

-Beaches. One of the things that makes Galicia such an exciting destination is its coastline, which is longer, and has more beaches, than any other region in Spain. What's more, mass tourism is uncommon here, so the beaches have a wild, unspoiled character. There are 13 beaches in the Ribeira area alone. One of the best is Playa das Furnas, facing the Atlantic, just up from Corrubedo.

-Nature. On the other side of the cape from Ribeira is the Dunes of Corrubedo Natural Park. As well as boasting an impressive system of golden dunes, the park supports rich wildlife, with seven out of ten of Galicia's amphibian and reptile species found here. The rest of the Barbanza peninsula is made up of hills covered in rich, green forest, containing stone-age dolmen and natural sights like waterfalls.

-Santiago de Compostela. The capital of Galicia, the historic centre of this city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's a magnificent and friendly university town known for many centuries as the final destination of the Europe-wide Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. Two sights that need to be seen here are the monumental Cathedral, from the 11th Century, and the collegiate church of Santa Maria de Sar.

-Food and drink. At a location that is synonymous with fishing, it makes sense that fish and seafood should be a staple. Freshness is the key, so most dishes are simple to preserve the unique flavours of the produce, be it hake, mussels, cuttlefish, clams, prawns or octopus. Grilled sardines are a speciality specific to Ribeira - it's a fragrance that you'll notice at different locations around the town.

Great outdoor space with BBQ and canopy. The house was warmed by a good sized wood burner which kept us toasty during the cooler evenings.

The house is roomy and homely as well as being very well appointed. The perfect base for your holiday. The area is lovely too. The town of Sanxenxo is just a couple of kilometers away and has some lovely bars and restaurants along with a lovely beech. The coastline is very picturesque with many unspoilt beeches and some views. The owner is most helpful and welcoming. Altogether, highly recommended.
